A bright smoky eye

To complement a bright sunny day! 

Or a heatwave. 

Depending on your interpretation of 30 degrees in London. 

It such a refreshing change to see a bright colour being used in a smoky eye instead of the silver, black, brown and purple. 


It was quite easy to create really. I just used a bright yellow colour from Sleeks Circus palette on the three quarters of the lid and some Urban Decay Darkhorse in the crease and Creep in the outer v. 

Would you wear this out? 

I think I would. It's a bit daring but quite fun at the same time. The yellow really adds life to a make-up look in general and compliments pastel outfits so well. I think I might pair a rosy blush and cherry lips with it. 

Oh and Ramadan Kareem to all those who are celebrating it. 17 and a half hours of fasting, for 30 days in a row is not easy I tell you!

I could never pull this look off with my blue-green eyes, which would look like a puddle of pee. But on you, this eyeshadow combo is absolutely gorgeous. I'd never have imagined such a color could look so beautiful, and I agree with the honeybee comment. :)

Definitely daring, but with eyes as pretty as yours, why not.
